Photos from the 1991 Kurdish Exodus - was when about 2 million Kurds were displaced by the Iraqi Army due to their attempt to control the uprisings in the northern Kurdish cities. Those 2 million Kurds sought refuge in Turkey and Iran but later moved to Europe.

Hundreds died as a result of Sadaam’s attacks in the north. Thousands died from the hunger, harsh winter, and the bullets of Saddam’s army while escaping.

Like do I even have to dignify the idea that it’s worse to play a shitty person in a movie than it is to be one in real life with a response?

pax-arabica:

There seems to be some confusion about a couple of things that I’d like to clarify.

When pro-Israelis say that Israel “provides” Gaza and the West Bank with water and electricity, it’s in the same way that your local store “provides” you with groceries. They sell them electricity and water.

It’s also worth mentioning that the majority of the water provided to Palestinians comes from water aquifers in the West Bank. i.e. they forbid us from drilling for water and sell us water extracted from Palestinian lands.

If you listen only to pro-Israelis, you’d think that Israel provides everything to Palestinians for free.

Israel does no such thing, despite the fact that as an occupier it has responsibilities towards the occupied population, but even the administrative occupational costs are taken directly from Palestinian tax returns that Israel collects as per the Paris accord of the Oslo agreement.

We fund our own occupation.

Abu Zubaida, also known as Zayn al-Abidin Muhammed Hussein, continues to be held without charge in a top-secret Guantanamo facility with other high-value detainees. U.S. officials have backed away from allegations that he was a high-ranking member of al-Qaeda but say he was a facilitator for militants going to camps in Afghanistan.

The court ordered Poland to pay $175,000 to Abu Zubaida and $135,000 to Nashiri.

Amrit Singh, a lawyer at the Open Society Justice Initiative, who represented Nashiri before the court, also praised the decision. “This is a historic ruling by the European Court of Human Rights, which has become the first court to confirm the existence of a secret CIA torture center on Polish soil between 2002 and 2003, where our client Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri was held and tortured,” she said.

The CIA declined to comment, as did the State Department.

Poland’s Foreign Ministry said it could not immediately comment because its legal experts still needed to examine the ruling, according to the Associated Press. Officials in Warsaw said the government had not decided whether to appeal the ruling to the Grand Chamber of the court.

But the office of President Bronislaw Komorowski called the judgment “embarrassing” to Poland, the AP reported.

The CIA paid Poland’s intelligence officials $15 million in winter 2002 after they agreed to host the facility, according to former intelligence officials, who previously spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were discussing a classified program. The prison was in a cramped dacha on the base and had space only for several prisoners.

Business as usual for the CIA. They leased a black site in Djibouti earlier this year. The lease is for 20 years. 20 years…

How are people even turning condemnation of somebody’s endorsement of a massacre into a Marvel vs DC thing how?
